NEXUS NEWSLETTER: DECEMBER 2017
VOLUME 1: NUMBER 7
DECEMBER 8th, 2017
Welcome to the Nexus Newsletter!
November was a busy month for the Nexus core team as we continue to move our various projects forward. Growth of the core team itself has slowed as we are now looking to consolidate the growth in our numbers into strong organizational capabilities. Overall the strategy remains the same – to create a great core team that is augmented by the best Community members in the world!
We recently released a new Community-created FAQ document, and we’re really proud of the Community members who created it. This stands as a testament to the power and ingenuity a strong Community can provide. Nexus is highly focused on developing strong Community involvement as it will greatly help us in our mission to create the best digital currency in the world.
NXS was recently added to Stocks.exchange providing Nexus users the capability to make trades from their mobile devices for the first time! The Nexus core team and the Nexus Community remain highly committed to Nexus being added to as many exchanges and wallets as possible, and this represents clear progress being made on this front. We will continue to diligently work towards these goals until NXS is ubiquitous throughout the digital currency space and beyond.
Progress continues on the marketing side of things as we are constantly working to develop innovative ideas and strategies to help people understand a highly complex project like Nexus. Nexus is about changing the world by giving people tools that can be utilized in a beneficial way to affect positive change in the world. We see a future that is more free, more convenient, more open, and more abundant for all. Nexus will continue to broadcast our story around the world for all to see and will tailor specific messages to various constituencies in order to help them truly understand the project. As our reach continues to expand, we will become better at relating to people as we receivemore and more feedback on the messaging we are emanating. We recently surpassed 10,000 Twitter followers which is one manifestation of the increase in our concentrated marketing efforts.
We are very happy with how things have been progressing since the successful conference we hosted in Aspen this year. Nexus core team members as well as Community members continue to perform very well in moving key aspects of the project forward each day. All good things take time to create, and Nexus is building the peer-to-peer framework of the future that solves the key challenges in the space. The core team is growing, the Community is stronger than ever and we are committed to the ongoing development of the best project in crypto.
Here is a brief update from the development team via Nexus Founder, Colin Cantrell:
Wallet version 0.2.3.3 is in pre-release addressing the delivery of work to miners and improved consensus code in Unified Time. We are also in the development of a native mobile app, and developing the Tritium modular interface for easy deployment of modules in the soon-to-be module store.
Nexus Market Cap Growth
Over the past year the market cap of NXS has grown from $1.3 million on December 6th, 2016 to $101 million on December 6th, 2017, a 7607% growth rate. We believe this growth rate reflects our strong community, advanced technology, passionate team, and dedication to affecting positive change in the world.
We are Nexus!

We wanted to extend a big thank you to Pod 1 for the extensive work that went into creating the Nexus FAQ document. Their knowledge of Nexus will help to inform so many. Thank you pod 1!
